The awakening heart

“This warmth of the heart we are awakening is not just for people close to us, but it is for everyone. The aspiration of bodhicitta is so very vast it is said to be inconceivable. Some people define its vastness as “mission impossible.” Bodhisattvas are people who are committed to this mission of awakening the heart and widening the mind. Who is this warmth of heart directed to? Those close to us, those towards whom we feel indifferent, and especially challenging, those we feel antipathy toward.” -Ani Pema Chodron during her talk this morning at Nyingma Summer Seminar.
